Lee and Vic weren’t the only ones to love The Resilience Project by Hugh van Cuylenburg… Here is a book review from the QBD crew:
Volunteer teacher Hugh van Cuylenburg had a life-altering realisation whilst teaching in an underprivileged community in northern India – despite their circumstances, the children in this underprivileged community were remarkably resilient. They posed a stark contrast to too many children back home in Australia who, despite having food, shelter, friends and family, were battling with depression, social anxieties and mental illness.
Baffled by the contrast, he set about finding an answer, which led him to identify the key traits and behaviours these children possessed – gratitude, empathy and mindfulness. This, in turn, led him to create The Resilience Project, a platform to share his lessons with the world via playful and unorthodox presentations which both entertain and inform.
The Resilience Project in book form is a fun, poignant, insightful and helpful tool for us all to help us live a happy and fulfilling life.
